Another reason why I hate the Windows operating system.
This document needs to go out NOW. The Secretary immediately sits down at the IBM Selectric typewriter, puts in a piece of paper and begins to type. As this is an experiement, at the same moment, another secretary sits down at the computer and turns it on.
The Secretary, who touch types at 120 w/p/m is reaching the closing paragraph, while Windows is still loading.
As she removes the document for signiture, the computer is asking for name and password. As the Secretary is typing the envelope, the ‘desk top’ has just arrived.
The secretary on the selectric is rolling in another piece of paper for another document, while the one at the computer is loading her word processing application. The Selectric is on the second paragraph of the second document when the computer is now ready to take the prose for the first document.
You can try this at your own office.
Simply put, Windows takes ‘forever’ to activate, ‘forever’ to load and another eternity to get you to your desk top where you can spend another portion of time waiting for the application you choose to load.
Why does Windows take so long?
To put it unforensically, it is a crappy jerry-rigged system which is so badly organised that if Henry Fords brain operated on the same frequency of Bill Gates bicycles would still be on the roads.
Every ‘improvement’ ‘innovation’ whatever you wish to call it, has never addressed the basic organisation of Windows modules. Everything doesn’t have to load into ready when one turns on a computer, every possible self test doesn’t need to run.
This is why if you need something done and hand delivered now, you use a typewriter.
